Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. It’s balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

Pours an orange-copper into the glass, with an initially wispy eggshell head that diminishes to spotty lacing. The nose is of floral and pine notes. Flavors follow the nose, with some orange and light grapefruit citrus mingling with pine resin and pine needles to close the finish. The citrus remains on the palate, and with a substantive mouthfeel, but easy drinkability, this shows promise in the summer months. Not too heavy, but complex enough to be a good brew with a nice quaff.

12 oz bottle packaged on 08/24/2012. Pours a dark amber with a small, white head. Fruity aroma with a bit of pine, and a hint of metal. Flavor is similar, light on the tongue, but the same metallic off flavor.

tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Copper with thin foamy white head and light lacing. Smells a tad biscuity then a little lemony, grapefruity, and fresh. Tastes a little perfumey then goes into the dry/bitter. Hard mouthfeel, moderate bitter finish. Not bad, but there are others I like better. (Caveat- I just ate jalapenos and the burn is still in my mouth- so grain of salt.)

Arayaga2 (2224) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Gold with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet orangey hops with a touch of caramel. Taste is the same with mild english yeast and vegetal hop character. $2/12oz

ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 21, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma has lots of fresh, piney, grapefruit hops. The taste has gobs and gobs of grapefruit, slight mango and a little bit of pine. Grapefruit is the dominating flavor here. The end palate leaves a lingering bitterness backed up by the caramel malts. Creamy feeling body with moderate carbonation.

dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2012
On draught at 1702. Pours a mostly clear orange-amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is citrusy, tropical fruits and some resin. Taste has a nice sweet malt backbone with dry bitterness. Medium bodied and oily. Bone dry finish. Pretty good and super bitter.

Bottle. Dark clear gold with a huge rocky white head. Aroma is melon, citrus and pine. Taste follows and adds lots of grapefruit. Soft pillowy mouthfeel. Nice.

MaBeer1972 (2206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Six pack of cans from Julio’s. This is a hazy light amber brew. Frothy off-white head into the glass. Strong aroma of spice and spruce. Flavor is malty up front with layers and layers of bitterness. Slightly muddled, with a very bitter finish. Not very refreshing at all, but a solid IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 12 oz. bottle- Pours mostly clear orange with a one finger head that reduces to a blanket. Aroma is very hoppy, citrusy and pine, light malt. Taste is wonderfully hoppy, pine, malt is there but not in your face thankfully. Body is medium and carbonation is slightly high. Overall I really liked this, lately it seems all I have had in IPA’s is the balanced more malty than I’d like type, this does not shy away from the hops, which is awesome.
